During my SQF audit dinged for not having documents that would be used in a recall.  My mock recall documentation consisits an Excel Spreadsheet.  I have a fill in the blank media release.  Can anyone enlighten me as to what their documentation consisits of?

When we do our mock recalls, we actually make copies of the production paperwork for the items we are 'recalling'.  Say we had a label not match our ingredient statement...

 

We would make copies of all the paperwork, everything, the ingredients on the line, the finished pallet paperwork, and the paperwork that shows where in the finished goods were shipped. We even document the times we contacted the locations where those pallets went.

 

I don't know what you produce, so this may not be applicable, but it does give an idea where to start...

That is how we handle it as well and each document is identified in our recall plan.

Did you provide this documentation to the auditor??  I'm confused as to what else is required.

I do the same

 

Basically the mock recall is a traceability exercise, with mass balance, and a front sheet showing timings and who informed at each stage.

 

I usually enlist the help of a supplier, work out a scenario, and retain all documentation etc for checking by the auditor.

May be looking for recall procedure (the "how"  you would handle a recall, the contact points,and assigned responsiblities in a recall)

The way I used to conduct the annual recall test was to contact a customer and arrange for them to 'quarantine' a pallet of finished goods that had been sent out and prove by way of a photo that they had done that.

 

In 2011, our BRC auditor suggested that we should be testing our recall procedure in-house; i.e. how long it takes to perform each of the actions, were the right people involved, etc, etc, as per the procedure. That just meant telling the customer it was going to happen by email and writing a report afterwards. I'm thinking this year to go back to combine the both methods.
